The B&O team will also showcase a number of new chemistries ideal for military, outdoor, workwear, and technical applications, including Stormproof, Breathable OmniBloq DWR, and Shell-Tech Dual Action, a powerful C6 that repels both water and soil, according to a press release by B&O. The team’s booth — A312 — is located in the Advanced Textiles section of the show floor.
Also at the show, Frank Keohan, B&O’s senior technology manager, will give a presentation on transitioning from traditional fluorine-based durable water repellents to fluorine-free DWRs. Keohan’s classroom presentation will take place today at the Convention Center.
B&O frequently develops new chemical products, most of which are water-based, using environmentally-compliant materials and technologies. The company is a bluesign system partner and committed to a carbon-free future.
